But it is not required that you major in a Science, you can also major in a Liberal Arts program, for instance, as long as you.
Make sure you do all of the Science prerequisites. That would be a year of General Chemistry, a year of Organic Chemistry, a year of Physical Sciences and two years of Biological Sciences.
